Strawberry Farm at Genting Highlands Part 4 - Wordless Wednesday






I am delighted to dedicate this post to Ami, from Florida, USA of Southeast Florida Garden Evolvement blog, the first commenter of my previous "The Garden at Hotel Theme Park - Genting Highlands Part 2 " post. She's having "a new look for her garden corner". Go on and head over to her blog to view the lovely flowers.

Update on June 2nd, 2011
If you wish to buy lots of strawberries home and worry about what to do with the excess, fear not! You can freeze them and store them in the fridge. Read this post, "How To Freeze Strawberries" by Bumble Lush.

  2. What huge leaves on the strawberry plants. No wonder they have to put out signs that say "Do not eat."

  3. Oh, now this is my kind of place. I couldn't help myself and would definitely be eating those. Gorgeous.

  4. Ooooh strawberries, but nothing beats the fields around Tumbledown on a warm summers day full of strawberries and smelling utterly irresistable. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  5. Hi AB~~ This looks like a fabulous way to grow strawberries. I bet the bags help keep the soil moist and having the plants raised makes for easier picking. Nice.

  11. Wow, what a great use of space!! I like how they're stacked like that. Must make for very easy harvesting. One thing though, if they're all in little planting holes, what do they do with the runners? Seems a waste to redo the whole contraption every year?

    Love that do not eat sign!

  12. This farm looks neater that the one I saw in Cameron Highlands. Maybe because this is newer. I love strawberries in ice-cream ;-D

  13. Hi, everyone, thank you very much for the visit and nice comments. Actually, I am craving for strawberries too when I look at these pictures. I love straberries in ice-cream, on waffle and fruit cake.

    James, here's the signage explained: The farm here allow visitors to pick the strawberries at RM 8.00 per 100gms. However, we are not allowed to eat before we pay, therefore no testing while picking. So, better learn some tricks of how to pick sweet, delicious strawberries before going in. At any one time, maximum 3 persons are allowed in the same lane while picking the strawberries.

    Stephanie, this strawberry farm in Genting is smaller than those you find in Cameron Highlands. This is how they improvise due to space constraints. They also have a mushroom farm, organic bean sprout farm, a nursery that sells flowers and orchids here.

    Wendy, you are asking me intelligent questions which I cannot answer at the moment. When I visited the farm, I don't even know what a strawberry plant/flower looks like. I was too busy taking photos then. So, please forgive me for not asking about such things. Now, I'll know what smart questions to ask them during my next visit :)

  14. The sign not 'strong' enough should add in "Do not eat, poisonous" haha. Nice pixs of the plants & fruits. tQ

  15. These strawberries look so juicy! They have a great system, don't they?

  16. What an innovative way to grow strawberries! Lovely farm! I love strawberries but the ones we get here (from a neighbouring state) aren't all that sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My mouth is watering! Good thing I wasn't there- I wouldn't be able to resist no matter what the sign said!

  18. I just wanted to stop by & "Thank you" for visiting me. WOW!Look at those strawberries! I wish I could grow strawberries ( well I can grow them but), I would never see a one! All the wildlife outside would eat it! When we first moved into our house 20 yrs. ago there were strawberries planted here, and like I said the animals got there before me!Too slow I guess hahaha.

  21. Hello Autumn Belle,

    I am playing catch up after a bout of the flu and some computer problems. It was very difficult to view blogs on a monitor that goes black every few minutes. I am now using my daughter's monitor. Congratulations on your 22nd anniversary and what a romantic place to spend it. I enjoyed your posts on the Genting Highlands and the photos are mind blowing especially the temple in the clouds. Your country is very beautiful.
